Am I really a Christian?

Have you ever worried about whether or not you are really a Christian? A Christian is anyone who has the spirit of God living in him or her. If you sincerely trusted Christ in your salvation and acknowledge Him as Lord, then the Holy Spirit has come into your life, and you are a Christian. You won’t know the Holy Spirit has come if you are waiting for a certain feeling: you will know he has come because Jesus has promised he would come. 

When the Holy Spirit is working within you, you will believe that Jesus Christ is God’s son and that eternal life comes through him (1 John  5:5) ; you will begin to act as Christ directs (Romans 8:5; Galatians 5:22,23); you will find help in your daily problems and in your praying (Romans 8:26,27); you will be empowered to serve God and do his will (Acts 1:8; Romans 12:6); and you will become part of God’s plan to build up his church (Ephesians 4:12,13).
